Scott Hood

Senior Vice President for Communications and Public Affairs

I have the privilege to lead the talented team of creative professionals who tell Bowdoin stories every day—stories that demonstrate the enduring and transformational nature of a Bowdoin education and the Bowdoin experience. A senior officer of the College, I report to Bowdoin's president and work closely with other senior officers to advance Bowdoin's mission and strategic goals.

Previously, I was a public radio news director and reporter. I have a degree in English from Lake Forest College and a master's in public policy from the Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine. I'm also the proud parent of four great kids and a pushover for dogs (and even some cats).
